    Although we had to wait 15 minutes, the owner was very gratious and offered us a glass of wine. Very authentic (I mean they were speaking Italian to everybody) and the food was very good. Be prepared to wait because this is a very small restaurant, but it is worth it!

    I have to say Chiantis was a wonderful surprise. The location is somewhat deceiving but the food was amazing. My only complaint would be the bottles of wine are quite expensive and the restaurant is very crowded. We were seated in front of the wall of wine and we were interrupted several times for a server to get a bottle of wine. We will

    We have been to Chianti's three times. All have been amazing. And, every time the very crowded nature of the small neighborhood restaurant has made us feel like we are in a real Italian restaurant. Be aware, they do not have a bar or a large space to wait for your table. But, that is part of the appeal for us. Truly a neighborhood strip-mall gem. The specials are tasty and the pasta and gnocchi are delightful. The wine list is exceptional with choices and fair prices. The dessert profiteroles are a MUST. Enjoy!

    I have been to Chianti several times and the food and service are always top notch. This dining experience was no different. The daily specials are quite extensive, several choices, and the regular menu has many good choices. The chef does an excellent job preparing and presenting the food and the wait staff is top notch!

    Took a friend here for a birthday lunch and it was wonderful! Great service, excellent food and quiet atmosphere. Since we hadn't seen each other in a while, we stayed a long time and that was no problem with Chianti's. Also, they gave us a complimentary dessert for the birthday. My only complaint is that we got glasses of a house wine and it was very expensive for a little wine.

    We are locals and are never disappointed with either the service or the food at Chianti's. Luis and his new partner will have a great run operating in Rashid's stead as he takes on new challenges for a period. They were handling the brisk business very well on Saturday. We usually go during the week and the room is less busy. If you've never been, try it. Their big "sisters" Venice, GV and LoDo can't ever have the ambiance that this intimate spot affords.

    Food was just ok. Service was excellent. Had the special soup of the day...was potato.Was not bad, but didn't taste like potato.Husband had Caesar salad,it was fine. I had rabbit and ricotta ravioli. Dough was hard, couldn't find any ricotta. Way too salty. Ate a few, took the rest home and tossed it.Husband had lobster and shrimp ravioli, it was good. Dessert menu listed 2 crepes which sounded yummy. We ordered them, waiter said they were "out" of crepes! How can you be out of something that takes 2 minutes to prepare and only involves flour, milk and maybe eggs? It was early in the evening. We had the special dessert, cinnamon cannoli. Just ok,couldn't taste any cinnamon. One fresh strawberry was the best part. Won't go back.

    The most authentic Northern Italian food I have had in the US since my mom cooked Italian recipes at home. Loved the food and the waiters were wonderful. They really want to know if there is anything they can improve. My friend talked with them for a while concerning the thickness of the mousse which was a little bit rich. The entrees were excellent. I keep coming back to the rigatoni! We will continue to visit the resturant in the future.

    We've been to Chianti's several times and have yet to be disappointed by the food or the service. Each of us ordered a different dish - veal, ravioli, chicken, seafood - and each was well prepared with great sauce to compliment the primary ingredient. The staff was highly attentive even though the restaurant was packed. [Definitely recommend a reservation.] Our only "complaint" is that because floor space is limited, the tables are very closely spaced causing the occasional bumping of chair backs and quiet conversations are not easily held. We'll be back again.

    My wife & I went here for our anniversary. It was a good food night. We had several courses; antipasto, pasta, Entree & dessert. Overall the food as good, nice menu, little pricey for some pastas. Not a place to go often ,though, because of that.

    The potato soup was SUPER SALTY, it was not a pleasant dish. There were 3 of us women celebrating our birthdays. The waiter stated "We'll do something special for your birthdays.. .which unfortunately never happened. My friend received the wrong entree so we had no choice but to partake of ours as she waited a minimum of 10 min or more to receive hers. The food other than the soup was very good, I had the veal. I hope the soup dish improves !! LM

    We SO enjoyed our first ever meal at Chianti Ristorante! Fortunately, we had made a reservation, as it was completely filled, at 7:00 on a Wednesday night. We each had a wine we loved. Choosing from the menu was not easy--there were so many great-sounding dishes.Husband's Mediterranean salad was beautifully presented--wrapped in cucumber slices--and delicious. My Chianti salad was just what I hoped for. His entree, a sea bass dish with clams from the day's Specials menu, was out of this world! My light-as-air gnocchi--again a hard choice from a selection of several gnocchi preparations--with grilled pear slices and a Gorgonzola cream sauce, was to die for!Profiteroles with coffee was a perfect ending, topped only by a splash of limoncello.

    This was the second time my husband and I have eaten at Chianti. Both times were fantastic. They really know how to make outstanding sauces. We were celebrating our anniversary this time, so they have us each a glass of champagne in the house and were thoughtful enough to wish us a happy anniversary and marriage several times.

    We dine at Chianti for special occasions - birthdays, anniversary, valentine's day - for excellent food and service. The service during this visit was disappointing - especially because it was our anniversary. The restaurant is small, but a table by the wall can be somewhat intimate, which is what we asked for in our reservation. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant in an area used as a through way for patrons and wait staff. The wait staff seemed a bit confused about which table to serve. They finally offered us their wine list, but only after waiting on patrons who arrived after us. The chaos took the pizazz out of our anniversary meal. Hope service is better during next visit.

    Over all an excellent experience, the server was most attentive and very pleasant. The food was much better than expected. The reason for four star is that the dining area was a bit over crowded resulting in a couple of customers brushing against the backs of our chairs. Chianti had a very busy evening while we dined. I will try to return soon for another great dining experience.
